Shincheonji - 255 - The Faith of Revelation & Persecution
The Faith of Revelation & Persecution
Jesus said no one could know God unless he receives the revelation of the sealed book of the Old Testament (Is 29:9-14, Hb 2:2-3, Ez 1,2,3) and receives the revelation according to the Son's wish (Mt 11:27). In John 17:3 Jesus said eternal life is knowing the only true God and Jesus Christ, whom God has sent. According to these passages, those who have not received the revelation do not know God and His son, Jesus, and they do not have eternal life. Because they do not know God, they are like beasts (refer to Prv 30:2-4). Therefore, we must understand that if we have not received the revelation, we cannot receive salvation, and if someone who has not received the revelation says, “I have been saved. I have received the Holy Spirit. I am orthodox,” they are lying. The reason they lie is because they have received the spirit of the devil (Jn 8:44), and they do this to deceive their church members.
They persecute other denominations without any biblical basis just because the doctrines are different from theirs. This is because God, who is the spirit of love, is not with them (refer to 1 Jn 4:7-8).
Anti-Shincheonji sites have posted numerous lies on the Internet. The reason why our members do not leave even if they have seen those sites is because they know those words are outright lies. Why then do people continue to post lies on the Internet? The reason is, although their churches might possess eloquent words of the world, they do not possess God's Word of truth. Because their church members follow the Word and go look for the place (Shincheonji Church) which has God's Word (refer to Mt 7:7-8), the church leaders deceive their congregations to prevent them from going just like the Pharisees (Mt 23:13). In the end, the lies they make up to deceive their church members are posted on the Internet so as to continue to deceive them.
If a letter is not sent to someone, that person will not receive it, and that letter will go back to the sender. Similarly, lies and words of deception that have been posted on the Internet will go back to the person who posted them in the first place as sin.
True believers must understand the time they are living in (distinguishing the times). Now is the end of the age, the time of the harvest (Mt 13:39). At the time of the harvest, one must believe more in the words of the harvester than one's own pastor in order to be harvested to the barn (heaven). There is no salvation in the words of the world, but there is salvation in the Word of revelation from heaven.
It is useless to hope for salvation if one is under a pastor who has not received the revelation. Jesus said anyone who adds to or takes away from the prophecies recorded in Revelation will not be able to receive salvation (Rv 22:18-19), and since this revelation is the revelation of Jesus Christ (Rv 1:1), those who do not believe this do not believe in Jesus.
Verify the facts. Are you adding to or taking away from the book of Revelation? Have you mastered Revelation? Can you claim to be orthodox and saved even if you have not received the revelation? The revelation is given to only one person (Rv 1:1, Rv 22:16, Rv 10).
Just as people had to receive the revelation through Jesus in order to know God and Jesus, whom he sent, and receive eternal life at the time of the First Coming (Mt 11:27, Jn 17:3), today, which is the time of Revelation and the time of the Second Coming, is the same.If people do not receive the revelation from Shincheonji's promised pastor (new John), people will not be able to know the New Testament's true God, Jesus, and the one who has been sent today (Rv 2, 3, 15, 12). If people do not know, they will not be able to receive salvation, and they will be like beasts. Why do people like the words of the world but refuse the revelation of God (refer to Jn 17:14)? Can they still claim they believe in Jesus?
We at Shincheonji have mastered the Word of revelation and we teach and learn about it based on the 5 w's and 1 h (who, what, when, where, why, and how).
Rather than being jealous and envious, persecuting and cursing, it would be better to learn the New Song of revelation (the words that testify about how Revelation has been fulfilled), receive the spirit of God's son into one's heart through the revealed faith, and receive salvation (refer to Gal 4:1-9). This is where the value of true faith lies. We at Shincheonji continue to pray for this work.
